I hope Beginning Java is okay for this question.  I'm trying to learn Spring and SpringBoot . I have a mentor who has me learning by working on a small project and one task I was given has confused me but I won't meet with him until Friday.  I can email but I just want to run this by someone before I bring it up to him because I think I may have missed something.

I need to change the application's Java version from 1.8 to Amazon Corretto 8.
Maven currently has the maven-compiler-plugin configuration set with source = 1.8 and target = 1.8.

When I was Googling for information about this it looks like this is just set in the project's IDE or I guess the machine it's being built on?  So it's not a POM change ?

I compile all my projects in 1.8. Example:

This should work with Java 8. If this is the way your pom is currently setup, then you probably just need to download the SDK.

Locally:
File -> Project Structure -> Project SDK
If the SDK version isn't compatible with java 1.8, you'll see a lot of errors

You should be able to use Java 1.8 with Amazon Coretto Java 8. That would be a change on the machine to install that SDK and use it, probably. I'd imagine it would be on some sort of build server. Do you use Jenkins?

Thank You.  I was just confused I think by what was being asked by my mentor.  Things seem like it should be simple but if it's too simple it seems wrong. LOL.  Thanks for confirming for me.
